Pre-Op Appointment

I had my pre-op appointment for my deviated septum surgery for my sleep apnea and migraines in December. It looks like I will be off work for a week and I will have to spend the night in the surgical short stay observation area, which isn't an actual room, but does have curtains, which is freaking me out a little cause I was hoping for more privacy. Hopefully, I will be on enough drugs not to care at the time.

Judging by my blood pressure at the pre-op appointment, I'm going to be a nervous wreck on the day of the surgery. I've had surgery before, so I'm not sure why I'm having so much anxiety. I think I'm afraid that I will go through all this and it still won't help the sleep apnea and migraines, etc...

To be honest, I'm already having boatloads of anxiety cause I'm worried that I'm not going to be approved for the time off work, and the paperwork process is so long. This early winter is so depressing and the holidays always get me down, too. I'm trying to talk to myself like an adult so I don't have a complete melt down by the end of this year, but it's so hard.

Sugar Migraine Skull

I recently saw an exhibit at The Detroit Institute of Arts for Ofrendas by local artists. They not only honored the dead, but places, moments in time, ideas and events, so I was inspired to try drawing some of my own Sugar Migraine Skulls.
